It’s not just Jews. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, doesn’t seem to like Christians much, either. After video went viral of an apparently impromptu Christian sing-along on a commercial air flight, Omar tweeted: “I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane. How do you think it will end?”

Some passengers in the video look annoyed with the airborne revival, and that’s understandable. But Omar wasn’t on the plane. It didn’t inconvenience her. There’s no telling what would happen if Omar’s family started praying loudly. It would probably make a lot of passengers uncomfortable, given the history of Muslims crashing airliners into things. But hey, she should give it a try. It’s a free county.
In the meantime, according to FNC, Omar has gone silent on the topic, except to retweet support from a charming leftwing Deadspin blogger named Chuck Modi: "’Ilhan Omar: Makes very valid point,’ Modi wrote. "’Right-wingers who hate Ilhan Omar: ‘You are “attacking Christianity” because I am stupid or dishonest or just pandering to my bigoted base.”’
Or maybe – and this is just a guess based on her long history of antisemitism – Ilhan Omar is a Muslim bigot.
